I am probably the only one, but unplug the onboard charger. More than once I have looked in the rear view and saw a 50 ft extension cord chasing me!

More than once for me! Also remotes for trolling motor. I had a powerdrive with Ipilot. You can't use a foot pedal on that model when it has I-pilot. Hard to troll or sit still without it.

my truck stays packed with enough equipment to bank or boat whenever the opportunity is at hand .....
i carry so many assorted things you just cant imagine .....so i dont really need a check list .....
i just need an opportunity .....and yes the reason there is that much in my truck is because of all the times i got somewhere and went ....are you kiddin me ?

For decades, I have made fun of a friend who... we got into the duck blind on the river, which is an arduous task to get to... got in there all settled and he said where is my gun? He went all the way back to the dock, which was two miles of torture to get back to, then drove 30 miles back to his house to get his gun.

A month ago, I got to the lake and found I had left my rod n reels! Are you kidding me? I did have one old rod n reel onboard and went with it.

+1 on the spare for the boat trailer. Seen way too many boats left on the side of the road while the owner goes to find a spare to replace a blown tire. Although mine is attached to the trailer, I always check the tire pressure in the spare when checking tire pressure on the trailer.

My thermacell mosquito repeller. Mosquitos will run a fisherman off the water faster than anything. Insect sprays and any type of fish bait whether live bait or artificial bait just don't work together and insect spray will just ruin a fishfinder(sonar) screen.

I to have left my remote for the trolling motor at home. I recently purchased a backup remote but I always keep extra batteries for my remote and air bubbler.
I have also left my bait nets and fishing nets at home or in another boat.

I used to have a checklist. Then I added a box to the trailer and now all that stuff lives in the box. Everything I need for the boat, lives in the boat.

Before the trailer box, I put all the gear in a tote and that went into the back of the truck when I hooked up the boat.

I do similar to Hanr3. I have a tote bag i keep my remote, first aid, extra cap, fish finders, boat keys, parking pass, and misc that i take in and out of the boat. The rest stays in the boat at all times except rods---take them out before i put the cover on and put them in when i hook the boat up. And yes don't forget to unhook the charger. Trashed my basement and a 100 dollar extension cord one morning forgetting to unplug :(
